In the commentary accompanying your top 200 consultants feature (1 October, page 45), you say FaberMaunsell has 16,000 staff following acquisition of Oscar Faber in 2001.

I would like to put the record straight. AECOM, our parent company, has about 18,000 staff in 13 operating companies worldwide including FaberMaunsell. AECOM acquired Oscar Faber in 2001 and merged the company with Maunsell and Metcalf & Eddy, which had a strong track record in transportation infrastructure and environmental. As a result, the new company, FaberMaunsell, was launched in March 2002.
